Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Marinate the chicken

Heat the oven to 425°F.
Prep and cook instructions are identical for both chicken options.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a medium bowl, stir together the sweet chile glaze and anchovy-lime dressing. Add the chicken and toss to coat evenly. Let stand while you prepare the vegetables and pineapple.

2

Prep the vegetables and pineapple

  • Remove the stem from the eggplant; cut the eggplant into 1-inch cubes.
  • Drain any excess liquid from the pineapple and pat dry. Cut any large pieces in half.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal, keeping the light and dark green parts separate. Set aside the light parts for roasting and the dark green parts for garnish.

3

Roast the chicken, vegetables, and pineapple

Line a sheet pan with parchment paper, if using, and brush the parchment or pan (if not using parchment) lightly with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Place the eggplant, pineapple, and light parts of the scallions on the prepared sheet pan. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Drizzle 1 to 2 tablespoons of the marinade from the chicken bowl, toss to coat, and spread the fruit and vegetables in an even layer. Top with the chicken and drizzle everything with any remaining marinade from the bowl.

4

Toast the sesame seeds

In a dry small frying pan over medium heat, toast the sesame seeds, stirring often, until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool.

Serve

Transfer the chicken to individual plates and top with the roasted vegetables and pineapple. Garnish with the sesame seeds and dark green parts of the scallions and serve.
